Global megatrends such as the rise of international competition and prolonged low commodity prices are disrupting the entire Energy & Utilities industry. Leading Equipment OEM’s and EPCs are adopting a more modular approach to plant and module design and fabrication.

A modular plant design approach allows project teams to decompose large plant data structures into smaller, multi-discipline modules.  When combined with our solutions for 3D CAD and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), plant module assemblies and subassemblies can be designed and revised under full configuration control.  This allows designers to explore modular solutions that would previously been cost or time prohibitive.  

Our solution extends beyond design. The integration of modular plant design data into the PLM solution enables full enterprise data management.  This leads to data-centric project execution to include full module manufacturing planning along with the digitalization of the module fabrication facility to make processes more predictable while reducing cost.
